Tom Corbett, Space Cadet

(4.4 stars; 9 reviews)

Additional shows. Great 1950's Old Time Radio. A juvenile series that was on radio and TV at the same time. Blast off to save the Universe!

This recording is part of the Old Time Radio collection.



Juvenile, but not childish

(4 stars)

Sure, it was created for kids during an innocent time. Yes, the premise is a bit silly. OK, the vernacular is a trifle forced. With all its faults, a still-entertaining, heart-rendingly nostalgic romp through the Solar system. Fast paced dialogue and well conceived dramatic elements make this work a wonderful escape and twenty-some minutes of pure fun. Perfect in a personal audio player when you're stuck in an airport, riding a train or bus or otherwise enduring something you'd rather not be doing.
